  • 95 of Every 100 Tablets Sold is an iPad
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8-nKo2hqlg]YouTube - Apple ad - iPad is Electric[/ame]


    Apple has solidified its early lead in the tablet sales war, increasing its market share in tablet computers to an overwhelming 95%, according to new sales data from market research firm Strategy Analytics. "The tablet wars are up and running," said Neil Mawston, Director of Strategy Analytics. Apple is protecting its early lead with a new ad touting the iPad as "full-size" as compared to the current crop of challengers that all have 7-inch screens.

    Overall sales of tablet computers shot up 26% over the last quarter for a total of 4.4 million sold, Strategy Analytics found. 4.19 million of those were iPads, making up 95.5% of the total. At the same time, the number of tablets running the Android operating system went from 2.9 percent to 2.3 percent: an increase in total numbers but a decrease in shares. Android and Blackberry tablets "are trailing in Apple's wake and they already have much ground to make up," Marston said in a statement announcing the results. While several manufacturers - including Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Dell - are coming out with Android tablets in the coming weeks and months, Apple just expanded its distribution channels to include AT&T and Verizon retail outlets as well as chains like Target, Best Buy and Wal-Mart. Additionally, the challengers have a high hurdle to overcome in terms of marketing: few consumers seem to have any interest at all in alternatives to the iPad.

    ChangeWave surveyed 3,108 consumers during October and found that one in four of them (26%) say they plan on purchasing a tablet in the future, with four out of five (80%) of those saying they'll buy an iPad. Research In Motion's forthcoming PlayBook was a very distant second at 8%, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab at 3% and the HP Slate with 2%. Consumers appear to be turning in increasing numbers to tablets instead of netbooks: only 14% of those who plan on buying a laptop in the next 90 days say it will be a netbook: a decline of 10 percentage points since the high-water mark in June of 2009.

      The sword game isn't released yet it was going to be called project sword but the final name was just announced "infinity sword"

      I think it'll be really cool if the iPad gets a retina screen though the images would have to be so big

      Very interesting. I wonder how the smartphone dominance would have been if Apple would have had it open carrier from the start. I imagine the percent would be the same as the iPad. Now that AT&T will no longer be exclusive and with the app store booming I can see some android users crossing over. With apple currently pushing the limits and leading tech they may overwhelm the market with the I5. I just hope MS gets out of their rut so we can have some good competition. Just like in sports you play as good as your competition. If the tech world gives apple a run for it's money the tech world will put out some amazing products and continue to strive for perfection. Going to get interesting next year that's for sure.

      Thats because Steve Jobs can see the future. He's proven it a few times.

How long do people reallistically think the insane dominance will last? I say this time next year apple will still be in the lead but numbers will be closer to say iPhone v droid v rim and the others.
      when the ipad starts falling behind on sales than boom they release the second gen ipad

      Infinity Blade. And lol, yeah they'd have to be 20" images. And seeing as how every app comes bundled with UI images for the regular, Retina, AND iPad display when it's a universal app, I don't want the iPad to get Retina for selfish reasons.

      Is that why you buy the products you buy? Some of us are a bit more discerning.
